I am incredibly disappointed in Governor Malloy’s veto of the bipartisan budget that was recently passed by the CT legislature. I have been saying for many weeks that the Governor’s proposed budget punishes Trumbull residents by taking money away from our schools and passes Hartford’s fiscal mismanagement onto our backs.
While the bipartisan budget that was approved by the legislature is by no means perfect, Trumbull residents clearly do better under its plan. Why should Trumbull residents be forced to pay for other communities failed fiscal policies and receive zero dollars promised to us for education. Trumbull residents send $80.4 million in state income tax to Hartford and now we will receive nothing.
